UK leisure carrier Jet2 is now aiming to resume operations on 17 June, after it previously cancelled all flying until 1 May.

The airline’s parent Dart Group says that it has extended the shutdown for its flights and holidays programme because of “the ongoing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic”.

Dart notes that decisions are “under constant review” in line with guidance from governments and relevant authorities.

Cirium fleets data shows that Jet2 has 92 aircraft, of which 74 are Boeing 737-800s. The fleet also includes eight 737 Classics, nine 757s and a single Airbus A321. All of the aircraft are listed as being in storage.

Jet2’s regular network spans 82 destinations, and it operates from nine UK bases, the carrier’s website indicates.

“We recognise that these unprecedented events have had a huge impact on our customers, and we would like to thank them for their loyalty, understanding and patience,” says Dart.
